|Transient - Be EP [mtk145] - Transient|
First things first - American artist Transient's 'Over The River And Through The Woods' on the One netlabel was probably our favorite netlabel release of 2004 - gorgeous laidback electronics that deserve approximately a million listens. And, since we loved the 'Ancient EP' he put out on Monotonik a couple of years back, we asked him nicely for an exclusive new EP for us. So he delivered, and now we have the beautifully mixed-up melodics of the puntastically titled 'Be EP'...

The Goddess a silent film from China made in 1934 and starring Ruan Lingyu in a stunning performance is the story of a prostitute and her son. (The word for Goddess in Chinese also means a loose woman) It was directed by Wu Yonggang. It is a simply lovely film which will move you as few silent films can. I discovered it on the Archive, stabilized the print and added a music track and some titles. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

|Girilal Baars - Litanies in Zero Kelvin (ca370) - Girilal Baars|
Old folk songs have no need to be reinvented. They have no needs at all. But like our memories of the dead, we must resurrect them from time to time, because they cause us pleasure, dread or pain. The central theme of Litanies in Zero Kelvin is death, the final entropy state. Death has never held any intrinsic meaning to me. But there are bound to be some spiritual mysteries involved in any attempted rapprochement...
